Overnight Open Thread

American's Give Record High Ratings To Several U.S. Allies. Now that isn't really surprising. However, I am surprised at the level of support Iran (pictured above), Pakistan and North Korea get. Yes, I know that some of this probably comes from ex-pats from those countries but would you really expect to get over 10% support in a random sample of 1,029 adults spread out over 50 states and D.C.? Just who are these people?


What Movie Posters Say

Interesting. It seems that the design of a movie poster can give you a clue as to what type of movie and whether or not it has a chance of being good. Thirteen Movie Poster Trends That Are Here To Stay And What They Say About Their Movies. The above poster means the movie will be like this:

2. Sexy Back (Most Likely to Contain Weaponry): The movies that use this sort of poster will feature a lot of action with a thin veneer of pretentious intellectual posturing. Unless it's a biopic about Johnny Cash.

Hollywood's Leading Men

Well, here's your chance 'ette's to vote for who you think was/is Hollywood's greatest leading man. Bonus hobo points if you can guess the name of the actor above WITHOUT cheating and looking at the image data.

Mile High Club

Evidently, there is a private charter airline in Cincinnati that offers you the opportunity to join the Mile High Club. Local Air Company Offers Fliers Chance At In-flight Sex. Wow. A whole hour? What do you do with the remaining 57 minutes?

Sightseeing takes on a different meaning onboard those flights. Welcome to Cincinnati's Flamingo Air , where turbulence is expected.

"I have had a high heel in my ear once, been shot in the back of the head with a champagne cork, and thank God we wear headsets," said "Captain" Dave MacDonald. He is the co-president of Flamingo Air and pilots many of the flights. And those are just some of the stories the pilots are willing to share. But many others, as well as the mile high client list, will stay in the cockpit forever.

Honey Trapper

I don't know about this but hey, he's makin' some coin doing this. Meet The Honey Trapper. Now, what's a honey trapper you ask? Well, it's a dude that gets paid some big bucks to go and hit on your girlfriend essentially to see if she stays true to you while she's out with the "girls".

Jack Knowles is a honey-trapper — a master seducer paid to prove someone's other half is two-timing. Suspicious men hire Jack to catch out their unsuspecting partner — and these jealous men dish out a lot of dosh for his service.

Single Jack has made approximately £200,000 from his business in its first two years, charging up to £1,000 a time.


Honey badger still don't give a f#@k!

The Boy Who Played With Fusion

This is one damn smart kid. Taylor Wilson Achieves Nuclear Fusion At Age 14.

The next summer, Taylor invited everyone out to the backyard, where he dramatically held up a pill bottle packed with a mixture of sugar and stump remover (potassium nitrate) that he’d discovered in the garage. He set the bottle down and, with a showman’s flourish, ignited the fuse that poked out of the top. What happened next was not the firecracker’s bang
everyone expected, but a thunderous blast that brought panicked neighbors running from their houses. Looking up, they watched as a small mushroom cloud rose, unsettlingly, over the Wilsons’ yard.


Warren Buffett

Eff you Warren. Anyone who still thinks he's some super duper investor is delusional. Warren Buffett: How America's Favorite Billionaire Plays Politics To Make Money. Seriously, at what point is what Buffett does considered insider trading?

Warren Buffett is very much a political entrepreneur; his best investments are often in political relationships. In recent years, Buffett has used taxpayer money as a vehicle to even greater profit and wealth. Indeed, the success of some of his biggest bets and the profitability of some of his largest investments rely on government largesse and “coddling” with taxpayer money.

Bicycle Pictures

Here's another reason why LGF sucked. He only posted pics of part of his bike on some dirt road somewhere. This is how you do it. Babes On Bicycles. Possibly NSFW. Just a little bit.

Valentine's Day Fail

Oops. Probably not the smartest thing to do out in public. Bound, Naked In A Subaru: Valentine's Day Role Playing Ends Badly. Sounds like something CC would do.

It began shortly after noon on Tuesday, when someone at the New Seasons Market in north Portland reported that they had seen a naked female with duct tape on her mouth tied up in the back of a blue Subaru Legacy.

The man driving the car had told the witness they "were just having some fun," police said in their report, but the woman in the back of the car "seemed hazy."

The witness phoned in the license plate to the car, and the search was on.

Authorities in Washington state were alerted, in case the car traveled north across the state line on Interstate 5. Portland police began combing the city's streets, while a patrol car zeroed in on the address where the car was registered.

By 12:56 p.m., the Subaru drove up, and when officers closed in, Harbar told them the couple was "doing some Valentine's Day role-playing," the police report said. Police confirmed from Pelzner "that she was voluntarily bound and nude in the back of the Subaru," it said.
